This year's installment will be played tomorrow night at 8 on ESPN and I will be sure to watch and will also be sure to have dinner first.

But here's something about that kick, and that kicker. Seven years before that game, there was a young man then known as Andrzej Debowski, living in a sad Polish orphanage. Life there was miserable, to put it mildly. But in Calhoun, Georgia, a married couple of math teachers, Tom and Michelle Griffith, figured that 2 + 1 would = a good 3, so they adopted Andrzej and brought him to America, where he chose the first name "Adam" to go with his new surname. He kicked for his high school team, won the state championship with them, and walked onto the Alabama team and kicks for them, wearing number 99.
When you read about the young man's earlier days, and how the love of his new parents changed everything for him, you'll see that losing a football game is not the worst thing that can happen to a person.
Still, I hope he is much happier this time Sunday morning!
